Dress up as Lucy Wilde

lucy wilde despicable me costume Lucy Wilde is one of the newest additions to the zany cast of Despicable Me 2. She’s part of the Anti-Villain League and she asks Gru for help. She’s got a few spy gadgets of her own such as the infamous… LIPSTICK TASERRR! Dressing up as Lucy is fun because she’s fashionable and she’s all about the color turquoise. A Lucy/Gru costume will make for a good couple’s costume, too!

Turquoise Wayfarer Sunglasses
The girl is IN LOVE with turquoise! Even her frames are in this beautiful hue of blue

Turquoise or Light Blue Trench Coat
Ideally, a turquoise trench coat is best. A trench coat just seems to spell super spy all the time, especially when it has a faux leather finish like this one! You can definitely use it to look fashionable on normal occasions. The shade of this coat isn’t 100% accurate but close enough!

Red Spots & White Base Scarf
Her red and white polka dot scarf adds a great pop to the outfit! You’d be surprised how hard it is to find a polka dot scarf where the dots are red and the base is white. For now, the opposite (red base, white dots) should do fine

Orange Wig
What could be a more lively combination than orange hair and a turquoise outfit? This wig is already bunned up and ready to wear

Spaghetti Strap Slip Dress
In one of the scenes, you see Lucy sporting a spaghetti strap dress in (you guessed it) turquoise

Dress up as El Macho

el macho costume from despicable me 2 El Macho is the owner of a restaurant, but Gru swears he was once the notorious wrestling super villain, El Macho! He’s a very over the top character so it would be quite a blast wearing an El Macho costume. Make sure you get the chest hair for that manly effect!

Fake Chest Hair
One of El Macho’s distinct physical traits, and the sign of his absolute macho-ness, is his chest hair! You might need to trim this fake chest hair down a bit

Red Button Down Shirt
Wear any ordinary red button down shirt then open up a few of the top buttons to reveal the chest hair

Letter M pendant Necklace with Gold Chain
El Macho has some serious bling on his chest! Buy this affordable necklace, which already comes with the letter M pendant. It’s not an exact fit, but the letter M comes with a circle around it and should get the look across

Fake Beard
This guy’s got a lot of hair

Lucha Libre Wrestling Mask
If you wanna dress up as El Mecho during his super macho pre-restaurant days, then don a Lucha Libre mask, preferably red… Just like this one! Bonus: you can wear this when you dress up as Nacho Libre next time!

Wrestling Suit
He also wore a wrestling suit to show off his built… and hairy chest

Long Black Wig – Men
He also has long black hair during his wrestling days

Red Cape
And the finale? A red cape!

Did you Know?

El Macho was initially voiced by the legend, Al Pacino, but due to creative differences he was replaced by Benjamin Bratt. Kudos to Benjamin for doing a great job. It’s rare to see him go over the top like this.
